Diversity

All the best businesses share one common characteristic – they all have a diverse workforce.

That’s why Daisy is always striving to create a culture which recognises that EVERYONE has an equally-vital role to play in our success.
Whether it’s gender, race, disability or sexual orientation, we are passionate about championing equality and fairness.

“As a mother to three daughters, by the time they’re in the workforce I want gender diversity to be BAU, not something that requires a campaign or a special day.”

“Strength lies in our differences, not in our similarities. Diversity in teams can be a differentiator that helps us drive creativity in the way we go to market.”

“Gender diversity in business for me is vital. It should mirror a balanced society and deliver the very tangible benefits of diverse styles and insights to any organisation, ultimately resulting in retaining people, customers and driving increased revenues. And besides, working with a variety of people is great fun!”

“Over time, society has broken down many barriers of discrimination and generated significant positive changes: none more so than equality in the workplace. I believe a good balance is crucial if we are to enable diverse thinking and creativity; driving positive outcomes that deliver growth.”

“The world would be far less interesting and exciting without diversity. It’s exactly the same in the work place: I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot, and together we can achieve great things.”

“After years being a solitary female in a male dominated industry, I want to use my experience of working in a diverse and successful team in order to help change the perception of IT & telecommunications. I am really excited about the untapped talent pool out there - the more the merrier!”

“It’s a privilege to work within both a company and a wider industry where gender diversity exists in strength today. As an example, three of our top five clients have women as the principle decision makers in their strategic vendor alliance programmes. I hope that this Daisy campaign both inspires and empowers those in industries where women are not as prevalent.”

“I feel incredibly proud to have been asked to champion diversity within Daisy. I see it as a great opportunity to influence and promote equality without consideration of gender. I strongly believe that gender diversity is critical to our continued growth and success, tapping into a pool of both internal and external talent that would otherwise not be attracted to us as an organisation.”

“Gender parity is not only key to women individually and collectively, it is also key to the success of business. Highlighting diversity and the achievements of women in what has been a male-dominated industry demonstrates the potential and the possibilities for the existing workforce, and for future generations to come.”
